The Yamaha MCR-040/140: A Lifelong Music Partner
Cool looking, great sounding
The perfect system for every music lover
Enjoy All Your Favorite Music
The MCR-040 puts your favorite music sources within easy reach. It's got a CD player, an FM radio, USB and mini jack inputs for portable audio devices, and a dock on top for an iPod, which you can control with the handy card-sized remote control. The iPod and USB device charge both while in use and in standby mode. What's more, it has both a clock timer and a sleep timer.
Perfectly Matched Amp and Speakers
Both the amp and speakers are designed for high efficiency and performance, so the sound is bigger and better than you expect from components of this size. They were also planned and carefully tested for best audio integration.
Advanced YST Technology Delivers Big Bass Sound
Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (YST) is a major reason for the high performance of Yamaha speakers, and is especially suited for small speakers. The CD receiver and speakers work together, using negative impedance drive to produce small low-frequency signals, which are enhanced to large outputs by precisely designed speaker cabinet and port. The result is powerful, accurate bass that seems to be coming from a much larger speaker.
Vibration Control Cabinet Structure(VCCS) solves the problem of speaker cabinet vibration with strategically placed pieces of wood whose shapes, positions and angles were arrived at after a long process of experimentation. It also uses special foam rubber that provides excellent vibration isolation performance.

It is built with high quality materials; metal face plates for the receiver and speakers, smooth action buttons and volume control; and a sturdy CD tray mechanism. The sound production is very well behaved at all listening levels. Sound quality is the most important performance factor for me. As an audiophile I am always skeptical about the ability to produce accurate and clean bass response with proper mid-range and treble balance from a single driver compact speaker system with no discernible intermodulation distortion; having exceptional bass depth a subwoofer is not necessary.
It has bass, treble, and balance controls with a subtle easy to read cyan dot matrix display (with two level intensity) and an included remote. The speakers have tuned ports on the rear with easy to use spring-clip wire connections and cloth front grills. An unpretentious front panel layout allows it to blend in unobtrusively with any environment unlike many mini systems that often look cluttered or like space age sneakers, yet it has all the necessary features to completely satisfy at a reasonable price point.
I seriously considered the Bose wave due to the small height, several friends have them, this Yamaha's sound quality is far superior in my opinion achieving much higher undistorted volume levels and better tonal balance, it is better than many other mini systems I auditioned from smaller to larger in size and cost.Read more ›
I must say that I am a CD lover, and even though I have ipods and / or iphones, I enjoy listening to my CDs. So I was looking for a small qualitative audio system with a CD player. The integrated ipod dock was an interesting feature, I must admit.
I previously had a nice mini audio system from TEAC with an amazing set of Bower and Wilkins speakers, I truly rediscovered my music with it. I moved and had to change my audio set, so before being able to buy something new I had to use a crappy old and small sanyo for the past months. since this afternoon I own this yamaha mcr 040, and I am really happy to rediscover quality sound: it is rich, warm, it has a lot of depth, the bass is suprisingly strong and deep, and I again notice details I didn't hear before with my "normal" audio system (as opposed to this one which is a high end one). That's the sign that tells me it is a quality audio system: hearing small details you never heard before with the previous / "normal" Cd player.
The power of this unit is also surprisingly good for its size, really enough for me, as I'll use it in my bedroom or studio. I figure I could use it also in my living room even for a party.
There is ONE THING THAT DISAPOINTED ME though, which I didn't read anywhere prior to this purchase: some functions are only accessible thru the remote, this is the only reason I give it 4 stars instead if 5.Read more ›
My Zune HD (I don't like iPods), which I use with a pair of Bose headphones, provides a better sound than this Yamaha system. I spent a long while listening to the same tracks on both the Yamaha and my Zune HD-Bose headphones combo, and the Yamaha got knocked out in the first round.
I am not saying this is a "bad" system, but for those of us who have other music systems and good mp3 players at hand, this ends up being an unnecessary purchase.
I have been buying all kinds of items from Amazon on a weekly basis for over 11 years and I wish to thank Amazon once more for their OUTSTANDING, UNBEATABLE service.
In comes this Yamaha to the rescue. Fills the room with clean audiophile sound and the bass is clean. Cello and double bass is no sweat! I sold 4 of these just by letting others listen. A little bigger than the wave, but much better audio. Remote is a bit cheesy but it works.
Hey, your paying for the sound quality and size I presume. I defy you to find a better sounding unit this size. Great colors, smooth vol. knob. One tip, do NOT use the cheap thin awg. wire that comes for the speakers. Replace it with any thicker awg. speaker wire. Your bass will get even better.
Great job Yamaha!!
